I honestly can't say enough positive things about Bob and his family and the care they provided to my 4-year-old golden while I was away for Thanksgiving. I was admittedly a bit concerned about using a new dogsitter for my trip but was kind of in between a rock and a hard place and saw that Bob got rave reviews on this site, so I went ahead and booked him. From the onset, he was incredibly professional and thorough with his communications, asking if I'd like some updates throughout her visit, encouraging me to pack anything for Misha that might make her stay more comfortable, and confirming day-to-day details to make sure he was able to accommodate her daily needs. I received so many wonderful updates while I was away (in the form of pictures, texts and videos), which gave me such peace of mind and allowed me to really enjoy my vacation. Bob has a great yard, a really sweet way with dogs, and an absolutely wonderful little family - I could tell that his girls helped significantly with Misha and gave her tons of love and attention in my absence. When I picked her up, Misha was happy as a clam and totally worn out, which was greatly appreciated after a day of traveling. I would recommend Bob to anyone who wants to give their dog a safe and fun situation while they are out of town - the only reason I would ever consider keeping that information to myself is so that Bob is never overbooked and always available for Misha. Would give 10/5 stars if I could!

Bob welcomed our Chocolate Lab Bailey into his home over the Thanksgiving Holiday and made him feel like he was part of their family.
He provides multiple updates with pictures each day and is very easy to work with.

I look forward to having Bob take care of Bailey when needed in the future.

Bob is an amazing host! Our lab Dexter had a wonderful time with Storm running around the backyard. Bob was very flexible with pickup and drop off times and sent plenty of updates and pictures to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend for anyone traveling in or out of the Philadelphia area looking for a fun, safe place for their dog to stay. Thanks again Bob!

Bob is great! He's our #1 go to sitter and always takes really good care of Max and sends great pictures.
Bob is truly "pawsome" - he is friendly, very knowledgeable about dogs, and trustworthy. The dogs were welcomed into their home, and I could tell they were immediately in good hands. We were away for 3 nights and we got text message updates 2-3 times a day letting us know that our pups were doing great. I would "leave 'em at Bob's" again in a heartbeat.

Having to leave my 2 pups for the first time was stressful, to say the least, but I could tell early on that they were going to be in safe hands & have a good time. Bob responded to all questions immediately & kept me updated on their stay with pictures, videos, & messages. I love that they got to interact with other dogs and children. I will definitely book with Bob again.

Bob is beyond excellent! We have left our pup, Harley, with Bob on two occasions (so far!), each stay being for 8 days or more. Both times Bob was quick to respond to any text or phone call and he sent tons of pictures and videos of Harley. I can be a bit of a neurotic dog mom, but Bob took the time to listen and talk to me, and really put me at ease. He treated Harley like he was his own and made him a part of the family (his kids are great with the dogs too!). Each time Harley came back to us after a stay he was happy and exhausted from all of the play and attention he received. I highly recommend Bob if you are looking for a knowledgable, confident, and kind individual to watch your doggy companion!

We left our two dogs at Bob's while we went on vaca. They received lots of hugs and play time. His family was wonderful with them. It is great going on vaca and knowing your pets are well taken care of. Thanks Bob and family
Two paws up
Our pup stayed with Bob and his lovely family for an extended weekend and we knew he was being well cared for. Bob was great with communication from the beginning and assured us that his pups would get along fine with our doggie so no meet and greet was needed! Bob has a large, secure fenced year and we were updated with pictures and video clips of the pups playing. Bob is just a great, friendly guy and we enjoyed our long weekend knowing our dog was in good hands. Drop off and pick up were a breeze. Buddy will definitely be staying at Bob's again!

Bob was a great host! He was very responsive as I was booking the reservation and did a great job providing updates and making me feel comfortable that the dogs were having fun throughout the stay. I definitely recommend Bob to anyone who wants their dogs to have a fun and caring stay on DogVacay.

Great host for our two dogs.
Another great stay at Uncle Bob's! Can't recommend him enough.
Josie loves it at Uncle Bob's house.
Bob was excellent! Responded quickly lift close by and kept me updated with his availability for pickup and pictures of her getting along with the other dogs
Our experience with Bob watching our bulldog Chubbs was better than we ever could have imagined! He is so friendly and professional, and his love for dogs was apparent right away! He expressed the importance of a meet and greet, after which we felt extremely comfortable having Bob watch our dog. He watched our dog for a total of 10 nights, as we were going away for our honeymoon. Bob sent us pictures throughout our trip, which made us feel so much better (not to mention the pictures of Chubbs were hilarious, as he was jumping around in the yard having a great time or snoozing away on the couch). Chubbs had a great time and we are so happy to have found a great host!

Our yellow lab, Marley, spent 10 days at Bob's and had a great time. Bob sent us daily updates and was always very responsive. I would definitely use him again and would recommend him for anyone who has a dog that enjoys other dogs.
Bob and his dogs are wonderful with Josie! She doesn't even want to come home because she has so much fun.
We had an excellent experience with Bob and his family. Our puppy was all wiggles each day I dropped her off. She learned some positive crate training and responded to daily outdoor toiletries as puppies need close supervision. Thanks so much for such great care. We look forward to future visits.

Bob and his family were fantastic hosts for our 4-year old Golden Retriever. They have an active house with friendly (and adorable) kids, their own dogs and a big backyard that makes for an ideal stay for a dog. Moreover, Bob sent us daily pictures & videos, was attentive to our dog, responsive to us and otherwise, the perfect dog sitter. Two big thumbs up.

Our 2years old golden spent New Year holiday
with Bob and his family. He had a great time.
Bob took a very good care of London and sent us pictures and videos every day.
He even picked up and dropped off our dog!

Thank you so much, Bob!
We would love to use your service again.

Happy New Year!

Bob was fantastic! I could not recommend someone more highly. He was very good with communication and went out of his way to make things more convienent for us as we dealt with last minute trip changes during our family Christmas trip. Plus, he and his family gave Sophie lots of love.
A sincere thank you and Happy New Year to you and yours Bob!

This is our first time using Doggie Vaca. We are so happy to find Bob. He opened his home and set pictures and videos of the dogs having fun. We were able to enjoy our event knowing our dogs were well taken care of. Thus is highly recommended !!
As usual Bob exceeds are expectations with Max. He treats Max like part of his family and Max is always excited when we drop him off to Bob. Max almost seems sad his first day at home as he misses his friends at Bob's . Now when we grab his overnight bag he instantly gets excited knowing he's going to Bob's house!!!!

My experience was so positive. I would not hesitate to leave my dogs with Bob again. They were well taken care of and he kept me up to date with pictures. Very much appreciated.
Bob was my first experience with Dog Vacay. I can honestly say that he is the reason I continue to use this app. Many people are intimidated by larger dogs but Bob took excellent care of my dog and treated her as one of his own. If you are looking for someone to treat you dog with care and compassion, Bob is your guy.

Bob kept in constant communication with me as our family was on vacation, reassuring me that my dog was in great hands!!!!

Bib also has a good sized backyard that provides ample space for your dog to play and exercise.

We've only used Dog Vacay once before and wanted to find a host with a dog similar in size to our Max. A couple days before our vacation we met with with Bob and his pups to make sure everyone would get along. Well it went marvelous. After a short while Max and Storm were like old pals with Bella as the side kick! We knew we had found the one. Bob sent us plenty of picks and a few short video's. We could tell our Max was enjoying his vacation too. He seemed right at home with Bob. Bob took really good care of Max and since we have been back I think Max misses his friends. As long as Bob is available he is our #1 go to sitter!

Bob was great, we didn't have a backup for our boarding center and Bob came to the rescue. He treated our pup like one of his own and his little gal Stormy played with our Coco so much that he slept for a whole full day when he came home. He had a blast and didn't want to leave. His family treated Coco like he was another addition to their family and Coco did all the things he does to us with them; including blanket hogging and ear kisses. If we ever needed to again we would have no problem leaving 'em with Bob.

My wife and I were having a pool party with lots of people expected in and out throughout the day and knew it would be difficult for our fun-loving puppies with so much action, so we wanted to explore the options on Dog Vacay for the first time.

We are so glad we did. Bob was truly great to communicate with for setting up having Roxy and Jack stay with him for the day. When I arrived with my goofballs in tow, Bob was ready at the gate and his sweetheart puppy Storm (who is very dog friendly!). Bob offers a safe and large outdoor area with high fencing (even Roxy who can jump super high couldn't leave this place!). He offers treats and fresh water, but more importantly he clearly cares about dogs and having his family spend the day with our dogs was such a reassuring feeling as we hosted a busy party.

No I am not related to Bob! He's just that good! Throughout the day Bob shared pictures and videos of our dogs playing with his kids and with each other in his big yard. I truly recommend Bob's services to anyone in the Delco/Philly area looking for safe and fun times for your beloved puppies.

Bob was the absolute BEST!!! He is very accommodating and sends tons of updates and pictures!!

I was a little apprehensive about leaving my baby at first. He is not use to being around other dogs. After a couple hours Bob sent me my first update and picture. By the time I returned to pick him up, I knew I had made the best decision.

My dog was not use to being around other dogs much less the ladies :) after a few hours, they were playing like long lost friends.

Bob gave my dog TONS of belly rubs!!! probably more than me...lol
